There was also Sarah Darby who married Henry Peckitt (QV*) (62 yr old widower and Swedenborgian) at Soho 11.9.1796 and William Butter was a witness at the wedding. Ancestry user-submitted tree has her as another child of Israel & Mary Darby bapt at St Botolph Aldgate 1769. She died as Sarah wife of Charles Jenkins on 4.8.1816 at Brightlingsea, Essex aged 47 (Intellectual Repository 1816/7 p254). I couldn't find direct evidence of her infant or adult baptism but it seems very plausible that she was a sister of Mary and Margaret Darby
